    Ps the small key to the left of the second named box of ward key with a dust cap is a key with Barrons Patent London Strand on it and matches this one below (would love to have the padlock)

    Really fantastic collection of keys - thank you for sharing! What is the story of the highly decorated, chiseled English key?

    Any padlock that has the Barron's patent and the Strand address is very rare and early (pre-Victorian). I have yet to find an example myself. Where did that picture come from?

    Thanks! Do you have a Barron padlock that you can share as always like to see new ones even if they aren’t original patent.

    Posted a catalogue scan from 1930s below.

    Also those keys I’ll post in another post so as not to confuse this one.

    Thanks

    Here is another barron’s Patent I have but it has a lever less key. Is this key made to fit to bypass it or is it just a case that they made less complex padlock? thanks for anyone’s help

    Not a Barron’s patent but a very nice example from 1850s

    Very nice, Simon! It is in Science Museum, I believe

    Here is my Barron’s padlock, circa 1850s. It has original paint/plating and an original key with intricate bit. The padlock is double-plated and the shackle is extra thick steel. One of the nicest Barron’s padlocks I’ve seen. I will consider selling it, Simon. It is 5” tall.
